For the gathering at the club, a brilliant battle of wits is at hand. Were these villains phantoms from beyond or evildoers of flesh and blood? Each expert has a theory. Which of them is correct? Whether writing as Barbara Michaels or Elizabeth Peters, this author is a master chef crafting richly atmospheric, suspense-filled delights. Other Worlds is an up-all-nighter guaranteed to still haunt in the morning, a tale as chilling by daylight as it is by darkness.

"The telling is adept, suspenseful and appropriately spooky. Most readers are likely to echo Houdini's opinion that the replay of the hauntings, though still shrouded in ambiguity, makes for 'an entertaining evening.'" (Publishers Weekly)
I enjoyed the story, it kept me intrigued and wanting more.
I'd add another story. I love the concept of a circle of people telling ghost stories in a cozy setting. I just wanted more. Perhaps a sequel with the other members of the club adding their own tales?
I thought the narrative performance did a great job of creating a nicely spooky atmosphere.
It made me go back and read some of my old favorites by Ms. Michaels.
The story just stopped ... The narratives were good, and the stories were interesting, but it all just sort of stopped and left me with the idea that the writer got bored with the story.
